Biological control of viburnum leaf beetle
Weston, Paul A.
One alternative method for management of insect pests is biological control. A variety of biological control agents can be used for insect control; these include pest-specific parasitoids, generalist predators, and pathogens (including viruses, bacteria, fungi, or nematodes). For this project, we sought to evaluate generalist predators and pathogenic nematodes for control of viburnum leaf beetle in the laboratory.
